Broccoli Salad

If you’ve ever noticed, the recipes from Pekarek’s Produce are pretty simple.  That’s because most of the time, our favorite way to eat the vegetables is raw or with some sort of dip.  In that spirit, I present to you my recipe for Broccoli Salad.  This originally came from my mom’s church cook book, but has become second nature in our house. Many people add raisins, but this is frowned upon in our house, so we keep it simple.


  • 1 head broccoli
  • 1 pound of crumbled bacon (don’t let anyone steal “just one” piece)
  • 1 bunch green onions (or 1/2 onion)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Salt and pepper


Remove the tough stalk at the end, trim leaves off, and wash broccoli head thoroughly. Cut the head into florets and the stem into bite-size pieces. Place broccoli, crumbled bacon and green onion in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine the mayo, apple cider vinegar and sugar. Add to broccoli mixture and toss gently.
